Yamaha's HPDI 300hp - THE most powerful
production outboard on the planet

Yamaha are looking to construct their largest ever single display on one stand, S2610 - Complete with the widest variety of products for marine leisure, commercial and all round use.

The UK market is served by dozens of proven models, chosen from a huge global range, to satisfy customer usage in UK sea and freshwater conditions. Yamaha "in-house developed" engines cover the widest range, rather than concentrating on a single and limited line of power units.

More than 90 outboards are on display, giving a choice from four and two - stroke technology including the latest High Pressure Direct Injection (HPDI) models.

Significant new models, the HPDI 300hp, F225hp, HPDI 250hp and 200hp, F150hp, FT60hp and the F2.5hp, have been recently introduced and, as always with Yamaha outboards, are 100% marine units, not adaptations from other land based markets.

Engine prices start at £489 incl. VAT for an F2.5hp, the smallest four-stroke.

Ribeye and Ribtec are also expecting to benefit very well from the use of Yamaha Engines in exclusive packages for their new models.
